I know I’ll be stating the obvious here but if you look above you’ll see Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page kissing. The incident took place during a photoshoot for one of those women’s magazines, where both actresses were interviewed about their upcoming film Whip it!
“[Meeting Drew] was a surreal moment for me in my life,” Ellen said. “You could just feel her warmth and kindness immediately, and the way she carried herself was just so grounded. So then it was like, ‘Oh, this is going to be great.’ And then it went into, ‘Oh, my God, I’m really crazy about this person.’ It just grew and grew and grew and grew and grew.”
Obviously it’s nice to look at and it’s good to see the two have…bonded, but i’m in two minds about how to take it. There aren’t that many female directors around and there’s a constant push in Hollywood to try and get more woman behind the camera. Drew Barrymorre, a female, has directed her first movie and has basically used her sexuality to promote it. Is this a cheap move by the pair to get press? Are they just playing the whole media game? Is it professional to be smooching your director and co-star for a magazine? Or is it just harmless fun?
Here’s the trailer for Whip it!
